If lights are blinking with Intermatic EJ500 or ST01C, then you have the red and blue wires reversed. The red wire should be capped off. The blue wire goes to Load wire.

    I have done testing on the blinking-light problem with 3 timers. Intermatic ST01C and EJ500 will cause lights to blink if red wire is connected where blue wire should be connected. Utilitec 0192773 timer: I cannot get this timer to cause blinking lights. I have set up the wiring in all possible combinations. If your lights blink with the Utilitec, I believe the timer is bad, or possibly there is a short somewhere in the circuit. I will test the GE in-wall timer next few days and post the results here.

    The ST01C and EJ500 will cause lights to blink if timer-red wire is connected where timer-blue wire should be connected. So reverse timer-red and timer-blue wires. With all other in-wall timers, I have confirmed that the lights will blink when your red wire and white wire are both connected to wire going to Load. Solution. Leave red wire connected where it is. Move white wire. White wire must connect to other white wires that are twisted together and covered with a wire nut. If your box does not have these other white wires, then connect timer-white wire to bare ground wire. So let's re-confirm our wiring: Timer-black goes to Hot from breaker box. Timer-red goes to Load (fan, lights, motor). Timer-white goes to other white neutral wires -or- timer-white connects to bare ground. Timer-green connects to bare ground.

Our holiday decorations are blinking. I want constant light. How do I stop the blinking?


Photo eye is getting exposed to light, so the eye thinks it's day and turns off, but then it's dark so eye turns light back on: lights blink on-off

I baught a 3-outlet timer yardstake #15137. why does it blink on all settings except the on at all times?


Your yardstake timer has photo-eye that automatically turns lights on at dusk.
And then lights remain ON until set-time expires, or dawn arrives.
Timer automatically turns off at dawn, no matter which setting, unless timer dial set to ON
Photo-eye has to be turned away from outdoor lights or lights will blink.
That's because outdoor lights cause photo=eye to sense it's dawn, and timer turns OFF >>> a moment later photo-eye senses it's dark, and turns lights ON again.
Thus the timer turns ON-OFF.
Test this by putting black tape over photo-eye, or turning timer toward dark area. Timer should turn ON and follow set-time on dial.

My intermatic time HB51R flashes on and off when on the timer position (2,4,6, hours) it keeps the lights lit on the "on" position and "off" on the off position


I think the timer's photoelectric eye is getting too much light from the Load it turns on.
To check this, set timer at 2 hours, and then put black tape over the photoelectric eye so timer senses that it is dark and turns ON.
If timer does not blink with black tape, then problem is too much light with will cause on-off cycling of the timer.
If timer blinks with black tape over the eye, then timer is suspect. Exchange timer for another one.

Turn on the TV and only Timer light is on , no sound & picture


after holding down the menu and device the led will blink a two digit error code such as 3 blinks pause then 4 blinks then repeat that sequence a couple of times. Need that blink code to help let you know whats going on. The 34 code means lamp abnormality which translates to the power Pwb capacitors have most likely failed.

Turn on the TV and only Timer light is on , no sound & picture


press the menu and input/device buttons both in together on the front of the set and hold for 5 seconds and then see if the set blinks a number of blink pauses and then blinks another number such as 2 blink pause 2 blinks which would be a 22 caode. It then repeats that code.
